Re: Superman:Unbound and Flashpoint DTV

I suspect animating his more realistic faces and anatomy was the bigger issue. Even a simpler version of Reeve probably would have been a huge challenge for the animators, so they probably just decided it was easier to go for something different altogether.

Re: Superman:Unbound and Flashpoint DTV

Casting information for Flashpoint:

http://www.comicsalliance.com/2013/0...me-familiar-v/

A lot of returning veterans. Kevin Conroy and Dana Delany reprise Batman and Lois from the DCAU. Nathan Fillion plays Green Lantern for the third time in the DC Universe movie line, while Vanessa Marshall reprises Wonder Woman, whom she played in Crisis on Two Earths. And Ron Perlman plays Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, a character he previously played a version of in Teen Titans.

Also, Tim Daly's son Sam Daly follows in his father's, err, flight path as Superman. Other newcomers include Justin Chambers (Grey's Anatomy) as Flash, Kevin McKidd (Rome, Journeyman) as the alternate Batman, Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle) as Cyborg, Cary Elwes as Aquaman, and Danny Huston (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) as General Lane.

Re: Superman:Unbound and Flashpoint DTV

The cast alone is actually piquing my interest. Maybe this will be better than the actual story was

Re: Superman:Unbound and Flashpoint DTV

At least there won't be a million uninteresting tie-in stories

As I dimly recall, the Batman mini was the only good one...

I thought Project: Superman was good, but Hal Jordan was terrible beyond words. Abin Sur was interesting, for the alt-history of what could have happened during Blackest Night if Hal wasn't involved.

The ones I collected suffered from only having 3 issues. It didn't give them a lot of time to set up the character/world, move the plot along, and have a satisfying resolution.

Re: Superman:Unbound and Flashpoint DTV

Project Superman was weird but decent and it had heart. Azzy's Batman tie in was the best part of Flashpoint though and I'm looking forward to hearing Kevin McKidd as Thomas Wayne.

Its cool to see Conroy and Delany, although since Flashpoint Batman isn't Bruce, it will be weird having Conroy. Still, the cast will help this movie.

Conroy voices the Bruce Wayne Batman, while Kevin McKidd voices the alternate Batman.

Re: Superman:Unbound and Flashpoint DTV

"Superman: Unbound" came out yesterday. Has anyone had a chance to watch it yet? I'm about twenty minutes in and so far the cast is extremely impressive, as is the animation for this this. It seems that they chose to ignore or not include the Zod part of the Brainiac invasion of Krypton. Clark and Lois are also "secretly dating" instead of being married like they were in the comics during this arc. I'll have further thoughts when I finish watching it, but so far I think it's been great.

Watched it. Liked it. Wasn't anywhere near as awesome as The Elite one, but good enough. Yeah, the voice cast was fantastic, and a neat little detail I did a dance of joy for, they included the yellow \S/ on the cape.

Re: Superman:Unbound and Flashpoint DTV

Our first trailer for the Flashpoint DTV. This actually looks better than the actual story.

Was it just me or did the animation on Unbound look a lot cheaper than the past few movies?

Re: Superman:Unbound and Flashpoint DTV

I saw Superman Unbound. I thought it was decent. I really liked the voice work, especially for Supergirl. Bomer made for a good Superman too. Noble's Brainiac was just okay for me.

As for the story I thought it was stronger in the first part and petered out by the conclusion. But overall a solid addition to the DC animated films. I had almost given up on them, but I think I'll be coming back for more.
